Answer: 
With the Defiant timer you can.
There is a Honeywell and Intermatic timer that look very similar but you can not use LED with them. The Defiant timer notes that you can use with all three types of bulbs on the lower left hand side of the packaging.

Not 100% sure. I used it with led bulbs and it worked fine. I Used non dimable bulbs because I wanted maximum light in an outside area.

Answer: 
In this unit unlike the original wall timer units, has the battery built into the guts of the back housing and can not be replaced. I am sure they have done this so the unit needs to be replaced every 5-8 years. They use to have an access door in the front under the cover plate where the battery could be swapped out.

Since it is a new manufacture I am not sure. The old style(Intermatic) lasted 2 years +and had an access panel under front cover so it was easy to replace the battery, but this one (Defiant) stays lit all the time.

The battery does not appear to be accessible, no removable plates, in the new unit so when it goes bad it's time for a new switch if you have regular power outages. If you take apart you can see the battery but it does not pop out it is soldered for lack of a better word into place.

Answer: 
It is built in, you can't change it. It's most likely not even a serviceable battery - it probably uses a capacitor that builds up its charge while the line is live and discharges when it is off. It's really just to remember the programming, b/c if your power dies the thing this is controlling won't work either.

Answer: 
This timer can pretty much be used with all types of light bulbs - incandescent, LED, and fluorescent. Within the fluorescent category, I would include both low & high pressure sodium since they generate light in a similar manner, electrical discharge to illuminate a phosphor.

Answer: 
This unit can be used on both standard and LED which is why we purchased as most of our lighting has moved to the LED lights. The old style Intermatic switch(looked the same) could not handle the low voltage and the display screen would act up and flicker or go blank. This new unit does not have that issue.

I'm using it on LEDs just fine. It's a switch, not a dimmer. Those are more particular b/c they rapidly switch on and off, this is just a switch on a timer. I hear zero buzz - oh and the lights are outside.

Answer: 
I just relocated this timer from my garage to my front door. It was disconnected on a Saturday and re-connected on a Monday. When I hooked it back up at the new location all my settings were still there, as well as the correct time from the first time I set it. So I would have to say at least 2 days, probably a few more.

Answer: 
Actually, after asking the question, I spoke with Home Depot tech support and was on the phone with them for quite a while. The answer they gave me was that the switch would retain memory for up to one hour ("at the most"). My two switches had to be reprogrammed after a 1.5 hour power failure. I ended up replacing the switches with Honeywell switches which I ordered through Home Depot online.

Answer: 
I would agree with the other post that other timers I've used have been backed-up for several days. However, I installed one of these on a rental property in May and the power was out in late August for about 5-6 hours and it lost the program. Frustrating to have to reprogram it. Defiant should specify this time. Better yet, improve upon it!

Answer: 
The packaging and written materials provided with the timer do not contain this information. However, based on my experience with analog programmable timers containing a built-in battery, the timer should retain the program for at least 7 days; when the remnants of Hurricane Ike came thru the Miami Valley, I lost power for 10 days and the analog timers retained the program the entire time of the outage.

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 287 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Works great, when it works. When they work, they work great, but quality is suspect. I bought three of them. Two running great for six months, the other recently would not turn off, even if I tried manually. Hit or miss I guess. I just bought their iPhone programmable one to replace this LCD version. So far the iPhone model was incredible. It is only 15amps though, but was SOOOOO Easy to program for simply or complex timings. I can easily say I will get the iPhone version every time now going forward. The draw back is you have to keep an iPhone for as long as you own your home if you want to program it ;-) July 9, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Waste of time and $ Worked for 2 weeks. Now it wont turn OFF. Reprogrammed several times but still will not turn OFF at the programmed time. July 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Everyone should get one This timer is great. I wish I knew about it sooner. Easy to install and the daylight saving time adjustment feature is worth it. No worries any more about turning on the light! July 12, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works fine, though a little complex Works as advertised. However, I really wanted something along this line without so many "features". Who really needs outside lights to turn on at different times of day? Might be what you need for indoor use, however, Home Depot's selection was limited. The Dusk/Dawn time setting is an interesting idea, though the variation from actual dusk/dawn times needs some adjustment. As it is, the lights come on an hour before needed. Perhaps more than four zones would help. Main issue: programming this thing was a challenge. The on-line video from the manufacturer was helpful to a point, though rather tedious (too much detail and repetition). Then when it get's to the part about dusk/dawn programming, it tells you what to do but not how - so from one extreme to the other. I eventually got it to work but am not really sure how. June 28, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Hard to program This is awful to program. We have been at it for 3 weeks now and it still isn't working right. They need to send a professional home with you to take care of it. We had one before this and lost our lights for 3 seconds and it blew the whole timer. Unfortunately nothing else works in that spot. I am going to try again tonight to set the on/off time. July 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Glad I made this purchase I was hesitant to buy this product, because I was going to attempt to install it myself, but after watching several youtube videos about basic wiring, and googling terms such as line, load, and neutral, I decided to give it a try. I was successful on my first attempt. The only problem I encountered was that I had to change the order of the switches in the 2 gang box to make the timer fit. The programming was easy, as long as you follow the directions step by step. I am using it to turn my outdoor garage lights on at dusk, and turn them off at midnight. Because of information you input when you set up the program, the timer determines the proper time for dusk and dawn in your area as they change with the seasons. I also like that there is an on/off button, in case you need to override the program. June 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to use and program This product was easy to install because of the detailed instructions. It was also easy to program. We just installed a different one in another area and this one was much easier to use. The design is better because the door that covers the controls opens downward so it is out of your way to program the device. June 28, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Easy Install / Cheap Quality After an easy install, I pushed the face plate to switch the lights on and the minuscule pin holding the plate on broke. Functionality is one thing, but the timer without the face plate looks horrible. January 31, 2016
